The New York Mets are thriving during interleague play, while the Detroit Tigers can’t seem to win on the road.

The Mets look to match a club record for victories in a season against AL opponents Thursday night, when they try to complete a sweep of the Tigers.

New York (41-30) is an NL-best 11-3 during interleague play, one win shy of the franchise high of 12, set in 1999. The Mets conclude interleague play this weekend with three home games against AL Central-leading Minnesota.

The success against the AL is a big reason the Mets are 21-7 since a May 21 loss to the New York Yankees to open their interleague schedule.

The surge, which includes a 12-1 record at Citi Field, has returned them to the thick of the NL East race. for more
